Privacy Policy for App

Privacy Policy is a critical issue that every app developer must address. Also, there are an increasing number of jurisdictions that now have legal requirements regarding privacy practices. If the app developed by you using the SDK of LG Developer site collects and processes the personal and non-personal information of end users, please follow these guidelines. You also must comply with all applicable laws and regulations relating to data protection and privacy.

Collection limitation and security

One of the best ways to avoid security compromises of personal information is not to collect the information in the first place unless your app has a specific and legitimate reason for the collection. So, here are the brief privacy tips for designing and developing apps.

  • Minimize your data collection in the first place.
  • Develop your app to protect the security of your user's data in its collection, storage, and use.
  • Make your use of social features transparent, if any, so that users are aware of when they're sharing data socially.

Privacy policy

Your app should include a privacy policy that addresses topics such as what kind of information your app collects from or about your users, how that information is used, with whom it is shared, and how users can make privacy-related choices within the app. You should use plain language and avoid technical jargon, to help your end users understand easily. You should provide a mechanism for obtaining end user consent to the collection and processing of their information in accordance with the user’s privacy policy before the collection of any such information. If possible, provide a control mechanism that allows a user to easily change permissions. You should not collect any information from end users (whether personal or otherwise) unless the appropriate consents have been given.

Collection of sensitive information

An app's collection of sensitive personal information raises important privacy concerns. You should only collect access and use end user’s information to the extent necessary for providing the app. The minimized and indispensable data collection will be preferred to avoid any needless troubles, problems or issues of compliances. After the information collection, put in place appropriate technical and organizational safeguards to secure and protect end user information. Please note that LGE is entitled to legal immunity on your app’s privacy policy issues that caused any claims, suits, losses, damages, costs and expenses.
